Comments & ID Thoughts

Finding many of these spiders while raking decaying oak leaves in our flowerbed. Is it a brown recluse?

This is definitely not a brown recluse. I’ve never found a recluse just hanging out in some leaves. I’ve almost always found them hiding under objects where it’s dark. Plus they’re normally a lighter brown color on the thorax. And because of the glare from the light I can’t see that textbook violin marking on thorax.
